Guam - In boy's high school volleyball playoffs the Okkodo Bulldogs had a shot at getting even with the unbeaten GW Geckos at the FD Phoenix Center. The Bulldogs started the game off with 3 straight scores but lost that lead as soon as the Gecko's took possession. GW scored 7 unanswered points forcing Okkodo to call a timeout and talk things over.

The Gecko's showed patience and experience on the court picking up scores to take a commanding 14-8 lead midway through the first set. Okkodo had trouble keeping the ball inbound putting a little too much on their shots. They did manage to score 4 points to tie the game at 19 a piece but fell short losing the set 25-24.

The 2nd set did go in Okkodo's favor as the Bulldogs turned things around to force a third set after winning 25-20. G.W showed why they finished the year undefeated taking the 3rd set 25-19 behind great teamwork.

With the loss the Bulldogs will play the Father Duenas Friars tomorrow night at 6:00 p.m at Guam High, winner of this game will play the Gecko's for this year's title Saturday Night, loser will take third place
